One of my favorite ways to cook a meal is with the crockpot. I just love being able to spend maybe 15-20 minutes preparing a meal, throw it into the crockpot and then forget about it for 6-8 hours. The crockpot I currently use is a Rival Crockpot. It is a 4.5 quart oval shaped pot made out of stainless steel with black trim. Inside there is a removable stoneware pot for easy clean-up and serving. On my crockpot there are 3 different settings; low, hot, and warm.
I received this crockpot as a gift and I absolutely love it. I would definitely recommend this brand of crockpots. They are a quality piece of cookware at an affordable price. I currently work 12 hour shifts at night, so when I get home in the morning a lot of the time I will throw something in the crockpot and let it cook while I go to bed. Then once I wake up around 1 or 2 it will be finished and I will have dinner ready. It works great because I can not be at home every night to cook dinner with my boyfriend so I know he has at least has something to eat on the nights that I work. This is very important as I know he won't cook anything on his own! So overall I love my crockpot. I don't know what I would do without it.
